Greece: diarrhea outbreak on charter flight

An Easter holiday became a disaster for 60 Greek tourists flying home from Egypt. They were affected by a mass diarrhea outbreak on a charter plane, the officials said Tuesday.

Three women were briefly hospitalized with high temperatures after the Egypt Air flight landed at Thessaloniki airport early Tuesday, officials said. They were discharged soon afterward.

The plane was carrying 120 Greek holidaymakers returning from Cairo to Thessaloniki.

Doctors said the outbreak was due to food-poisoning, from a meal consumed before the sufferers boarded the plane.
